VMM 100 MILES

After many requests from Vietnam’s most hardcore ultra runners, we are very happy to provide the next level mountain running challenge: the VMM 100 MILES. 

This will be the first 100 Mile mountain race in Vietnam.  

163km | +8,400 m

Start time: 05:00 AM, Friday, date to be announced

Start Location: Sapa Square – Google maps

Finish location: Topas Ecolodge – Google maps

Age Restriction: Registration is only open for very experienced runners, at least 18 years old on race day.

The Course

Make no mistake, this is an extremely hard 100 miles. 

It includes the VMM 100km course which has also been updated to provide more trail and it is therefore more challenging in itself. 

The new initial 60km is extremely beautiful, but also very tough. After a run out of Sapa, you will soon be on the ridge line, which is all trail and includes very little flat. It’s good terrain, but it is very much not easy. 

After running across the ridge line you will come down from Mount Silverstone (the final peak of the standard VMM) to Topas Ecolodge and Checkpoint 103. 

From here, you will head onto two stunning clockwise loops in the nearby valleys, returning each time to the lodge. This means you come back to CP103 multiple times.  Here we will set up a great checkpoint, plus you can also store everything you need in your drop bag

As stated above, the 100k course you will then join is also updated, with the most significant changes in the first 30k.

Qualifying for entry

To run VMM 100 miles, you must have previously completed at least one 70km+ ultra mountain marathon* (not a road event) before the race. The race must be an official race, not a virtual race / club run.

On registration, please provide a URL link to your qualifying result (VTS results page, ITRA results page, or similar). If you plan to complete a qualifying race between now and race day, you must send us your result by 30 days prior to the race date.

Failure to provide evidence of a qualifying past performance will result in refusal of entry.

*Please note we will assess your submitted performance for its level of difficulty and the organiser’s decision is final. A GPX track that is not an official race is not sufficient for qualification. 

Cut Off Time (COT)

Final COT: 43 hours

CP Cut Off Times (COT): To be confirmed

Race kit collection 

Special race kit collection will be arranged for 100 mile runners only ahead of standard race kit collection.

Mandatory Briefing and mandatory equipment check

This will take place in Sapa on 26/8/2021. Time and place to be confirmed. 

Your equipment will also be checked. 

As at all Topas races, we will also perform random checks, plus compulsory checks for the top 3 at the finish. 

It is your responsibility as a conscientious and rule-following mountain runner to ensure the safety of yourself, your fellow runners and the organisers by carrying this kit.

Awards

Alongside medals, Gold and Silver 100 Mile awards will be presented to finishers depending on their finish time.  

Other unique and special inclusions for VMM 100 MILE runners including finisher t shirts and more are to be announced.

Pacers

For the 100 mile race only, pacers (companion runners) are allowed for the final 70k of your run. 

The pacer must have run at least 1 mountain marathon to qualify as your pacer. 

Pacers may NOT CARRY any equipment, food or water for you. They are there for moral support and encouragement, not physical help.

Pacers must wear the special pacer bib that will match your own bib number. 

Pacers are responsible for their own transport to checkpoints. 

Pacers must carry the same mandatory kit as defined for VMM 70k runners. 

You may have 2 pacers, but only one can accompany you at any time. Change over of pacers is permitted at checkpoints only.

Please send your pacer(s)’ information to info@vietnammountainmarathon.com
